Colts unable to chase down Owls’ total

Bowling and fielding against Maryborough last week was a tough slog for skipper Rhy Egan and his Colts Phelans sideand this weekend wasnʼt much better, with their run chase falling short on day two.

Maryborough was just too strong for Colts Phelans in round 10, defeating the side by 94 runs to register its first two-day win of the season.

After dropping their first two-day game last month, the Owls have started 2020 off with a bang by claiming a resounding win over cross-town rivals, Colts.

Maryborough put up its best score of the season with 287 runs on day one, bolstered heavily by two century performances and providing a very tough task for Colts on Saturday.

Rhys Wagstaff and Luke Baker opened with 34 runs before Baker (17) was claimed by Jake Postle.

Wagstaff fell shortly after, bowled by Sam Bartlett with 20 runs to his name.

Branden Wagstaff was the next to come and go, seeing just 13 runs before he was bowled by Dylan Wilshaw.

Captain Rhys Egan and Luke Tatchell got things moving for the side, elevating Colts from their previous standing of 3/62 to 4/154 with Egan’s dismissal.
